Stefania Strouza

Strouza Stefania (Stefania Strouza)

"Stefania Strouza is an artist living and working in Vienna, Austria and Athens, Greece. Concerned with the relation of spatial politics and aesthetic practices, her work has addressed the ambiguities and conflicts such a relationship entails. Through various media, she explores how objects and spaces closely affiliated to societal practices could be gradually abstracted and transformed into a field of contemplation. Strouza is currently developing new works that examine the relationship between modernist vocabulary and its fragmented historical and subjective underpinnings."
